Injuries once again played havoc with his year, limiting him to 14 events and just one start in the final three months of the season –at the Administaff Small Business Classic in late October. After suffering from persistent pain in his left leg stemming from nerve damage in his L-3 and L-4 discs, underwent back surgery on August 16. Posted two T17 finishes during the year, which were his best outings.
Made eight official starts but did not play his first event until early June at the Triton Financial Classic in Austin. During preparation for 2009 season, damaged his rotator cuff in left shoulder and underwent surgery on Jan. 16.
Season was reduced due to right-knee replacement surgery on April 2 in Naples, Fla., and subsequent rehabilitation. Returned to action in late June at the Commerce Bank Championship (T74) but only played two more events shortly thereafter and none after the U.S. Senior Open in early August. Played in only seven official events and finished T13 twice.
Riddled by lower-back issues throughout the year. Underwent micro-surgery on his lower back at the Laser Spine Institute in Tampa, Fla., in early March.
Hobbled by a sore right knee at the start of the season and eventually had a series of synthetic cartilage injections in hopes of avoiding knee replacement. Season came to a halt in late July when subsequent left-hip problems forced him to the sidelines after The Senior Open Championship. Eventually had left hip-replacement surgery September 9 in Naples, Fla. and did not return to competition despite earning a spot in the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship for the third consecutive year.
Was a top-30 finisher despite knee woes which limited him to just 10 Champions Tour starts. Initially underwent surgery on his right knee at the Steadman-Hawkins Clinic in Vail, Colo., on Feb. 14 and was out of action until THE PLAYERS Championship at the end of March, where he missed the cut. Had surgery on the same knee again on September 7 at the Steadman-Hawkins Clinic to remove floating pieces of torn cartilage and returned in late October at the FUNAI Classic at Walt Disney World Resort. Played in 11 events on the PGA TOUR and made the cut in five of them.
